Chickasha Public Library Offers Free Virtual Mini-Clinic on Financial Literacy | Community

Those interested in preparing for financial success can join the Chickasha Public Library’s free Financial Literacy Mini-Clinic. This four-week virtual clinic will be taught by Leslie A. Sledge, NACCC Certified Financial Counselor and Credit Restoration Specialist.

Each session will cover a different financial topic, including Becoming Financially Healthy, Becoming Creditworthy, Becoming Debt Free, and Saving for Now, for Investments, and for Retirement. Information about each class is available on the library’s website.

“There are so many people struggling right now who don’t know where to turn, I just felt like it was a good time to offer the help that many are looking for,” Sledge said. “This is a valuable opportunity to expand your financial knowledge and plan for the future.”

Classes will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on February 11, February 18, February 25 and March 4. Participants can register for one course or all four courses and will receive a Zoom link for each course.

There is a limit of 20 participants per class, so it is important to register early in order to reserve a place. To register or for more information, call the library at (405) 222-6075 or email library@chickasha.org.

Sledge has over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. She has been a credit restoration specialist for 6 years and a licensed financial advisor for 4 years. Each class will include opportunities to ask individual questions and receive answers, and the final class will include a summary of information covered in previous classes.
